    Navigraph 1413 v3 with PMDG 777

    I previously posted this in a separate thread for the PMDG 747 but since its the same issue for the 777 I'll repost it here to ensure people are able to see the solution that worked for me for my PMDG 777. I have both PMDG 747 and 777 but have yet to test and see if I have this problem on my 747. I did encounter it on my 777 a couple days ago. I tried the suggested fix of deleting the "arpt_rwy.dat" file from the PMDG/Navdata file. It does regenerate itself as explained but it did not fix my problem. I don't have a subscription to Navigraph at the moment so I couldn't test using a newer navdata cycle. I just reinstalled my software from the download link and clicked the Repair option. This action of reloading the software even though the navdata cycle associated with the software hasn't changed, fixed the issue. My next step I would've taken if it didn't work would be to fully uninstall the software from my computer and conduct a fresh install but it never got to that point. For those of you out there that are still having this issue after attempting deleting the "arpt_rwy.dat" file, try a repair install and see if that helps. Worked for me.

    FMC Error for KORD - 10C Rwy N/A

    It seems to be that there are two separate main threads to this issue, one for the PMDG 777 and this one for the PMDG 747 v3, however it appears to be the same issue. I have both softwares but have yet to test and see if I have this problem on my 747. I did encounter it on my 777 a couple days ago.

    JS41 Startup Guide

    Thanks for the tips...I initially loaded via the Cessna, but it was still acting up. This time I loaded via the Cessna, then loaded the tutorial flight then re positioned and the props were already on the locks in the unfeathered position. FINALLY got to take it for a spin. I love most everything about this bird. My only qualm is there is no 2D panel. For my setup, VC only planes make it harder to fly as every time I need to spin my view to see gauges, plus zoom in, its hard to get my view back to outside and fly. The realism and look is fantastic, but from a smooth operation and functionality perspective, I do much better with the 2D panels. Maybe as an add on for a later version, they could add more pop up 2D panels like engine gauges. These are especially hard to view and zoom in on without losing full view of the outside world. Otherwise she flies just great!

    JS41 Startup Guide

    I have tried the tutorial flight step by step in the document and have even tried the procedures prior to start to properly set the start locks at the beginning of this post and nothing works for me. I cannot get the props out of the feather position so when I try starting up, the engine RPM never gets fast enough to fire on its own. The technique at the start of this post seems simple and makes sense and looks very well put together but I can't get any results by doing it. Throttles back in the reverse position, clicking the unfeathering pump switch both left and right, then back into the normal range...nothing happens to the props and I even had a separate view window watching them for any change and nothing happens. I have tried all sorts of variations on this, including putting the throttles back immediately after activating the pump switch, the recommended 10 seconds before re positioning the throttles, and even waiting longer before re positioning. None of these techniques unfeather the props. I'm at a loss at this point as I thought this was my golden ticket to taking this otherwise great looking plane into the skies, but I have not even gotten the engines running. If anyone knows of anything in the systems that would prevent this technique from working I'm all ears. I have ground power applied so there is electric power coursing through the airplane. Maybe there is another switch that is preventing this process but I have no clue what it would be.
